Cameron Carter-Vickers has chosen to keep his cards close to his chest regarding his future, amidst reports that Celtic are trying to sign the centre-back permanently.
Carter-Vickers has hardly put a foot wrong over the course of his season-long loan spell at Celtic Park, with the 24-year-old playing a valued part in the club’s march to the Scottish Premier League title.
It was previously reported that the Scottish giants were working to activate the option to sign the defender on a permanent basis for a fee of around £6m (The Daily Record).
However, 90min reported last month that the Spurs academy graduate was also attracting interest from the Premier League, with Southampton and Fulham wanting the player while West Ham, Crystal Palace, Wolves and Everton were monitoring the situation.
SBI Soccer revealed last week that Newcastle Untied had also entered the race for Carter-Vickers’ signature ahead of the summer.
The on-loan Spurs man helped Ange Postecoglou’s side keep another clean sheet in their final league game of the season against Motherwell on Saturday, with the Bhoys emerging 6-0 winners.
Speaking after the game, Carter-Vickers told Sky Sports: “It’s hard to sum up. It’s been a special season for the boys and we’re loving every minute of it.
“Mathematically we were champions so we wanted to put on a show for the fans today. I’ve enjoyed every minute of it – the fans and staff were great.
“I’m just enjoying today at the moment, let’s see [about my future].”

The “let’s see” indicates that Carter-Vickers might not have completely made up his mind about his future. One can see why the centre-back would be tempted by offers from Premier League clubs.
However, he needs some continuity in his career to fulfil his potential and for that reason, I expect him to complete a permanent move to Celtic in the summer and use the club as a stepping stone to joining a Premier League club a year or two down the line.
